Which Type Of Hearing Aids Work For You?

Good News! Hearing Aid Technology Is Rapidly Advancing.

There are many types of hearing aids available–from completely invisible aids that rest in the ear canal, to hearing devices custom-molded to fit in your ear, to the familiar behind-the-ear hearing devices. There are even hearing aids that stream phone calls and music wirelessly from your iPhone and assistive devices for special hearing needs.

Hearing aids can’t restore your hearing. But they can amplify sounds to help improve your hearing. Most hearing aids are digital. With small microphones, digital hearing aids collect sounds from the environment. They also contain a tiny computer chip with an amplifier that has a big job to do: convert sound into digital code.

The chip also adjusts the sound based on your hearing loss, listening needs and the level of the sounds around you. The amplified signals are then converted back into sound waves and delivered to your ears through speakers.

Hearing aids vary by price, size and special features. The right choice for you also depends on your hearing needs and your lifestyle. The best way to select the right one is to get guidance from your local hearing experts.

It’s All About The Latest Hearing Aids available in Bristol

The digital revolution has made a huge impact on the way hearing aids look, feel and function. They can be so small that they are virtually invisible, so “cool” looking that you’ll want to show them off and so natural sounding that they’ll mimic the way you used to hear before you experienced hearing loss.

There’s a reason digital hearing aids account for most hearing aids sold today. The quality of sound is amazing. Once you try a pair, you’ll see why they’re often the best choice.

What Makes Digital Hearing Aids Game Changers

The digital revolution has made a huge impact on the way hearing aids look, feel and function. They can be so small that they are virtually invisible, so “cool” looking that you’ll want to show them off and so natural sounding that they’ll mimic the way you used to hear before you experienced hearing loss.

Digital hearing aids can act on soft sounds one way and on loud sounds another. The more advanced the digital chip, the more bands that it will possess. Some digital hearing aids have the capability to reduce environmental noises such as cars running or dishes clanging.

There are so many options available to you! There are four basic technology levels: Economy, Basic, Advanced and Best. Each level offers digital hearing solutions based on your level of hearing loss, lifestyle and budget.

DIGITAL HEARING AID FEATURES

  • Dual microphones allow you to hear better in noisy situations. Some can even identify the source of the noise and reduce it!
  • Open technology that keeps the ear canal unobstructed eliminates that “talking in a barrel” effect.
  • Feedback cancellation does just that — it cancels feedback before you hear it as an annoying whistle.
  • Hands-free technology automatically adjusts to your listening environment, whether you are on the phone, in a crowd or in a windy area.
  • Your digital hearing aid can be programmed with a computer to meet your individualised needs
  • Wireless technology allows you to hear your mobile phone, television and home phone in stereo, directly through your hearing aids!

What You Need To Know About Conventional (Analog) Hearing Aids

Conventional analog hearing aids are basically amplifiers with manual volume controls and manual fine-tuning. These hearing aids help with listening in easy, relatively quiet situations, such as during one-on-one conversation and listening to the television, because all of the sounds are typically amplified in exactly the same way. This technology provides limited flexibility to meet your individual needs.

Why Wireless Hearing Aids Are So Popular

Paired with a handheld device like your smartphone, this type of hearing aid connects you directly and wirelessly to the sound sources you need to hear, such as your TV.

This technology picks up the sound you want to hear while dampening other distracting noises. No more cranking up the volume on the television; no more screaming into your cell phone and no more missing out on the things you enjoy most.

Imagine you’re watching TV from your favourite armchair. Your hearing aid is working fine until the kids sit down in front of you and start a conversation, dishes clatter in the kitchen and the neighbour’s dog begins to bark. With wireless hearing aid technology you can cut through this kind of noise clutter and just tune into the TV.

Each person is different, in a good way, which means the hearing aids you buy need to be selected, fitted and programmed to your needs. Our practice can do that, and help you live better with the right hearing aid.
